Self-Portrait as a Creature These incredible creatures are the result of creative self-exploration and problem-solving. The students began by choosing three animals that are like them in peronality, behavior or appearance. Then, they sketched out a creature that combined parts from all three animals. The results were a sort of metaphorical self-portrait - the student represented in the form of a new animal. Each creature is as unique as the student who created it!
Frida Kahlo artist research by artist Abby Hope Skinner. This section of Abby’s Coursework project shows first-hand responses to subject matter (self-portraits of herself in the style of Frida Kahlo, posing with a cat, dog and plants). The photographs of her work in progress are captivating (normally these are not required; in this case they provide stunning evidence that under-drawings have been sketched entirely by hand, with proportions gauged by eye).
